Let It Shine

Matthew 5:16:NKJV: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.

 The Holy Lamb of God, the Messiah (Emmanuel, God with us, Isaiah 7:14) spoke  these words to the multitudes at the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:14: You are the light of the world.... ** When you have been endowed with the power of the Holy Spirit from on high, you begin to shine with this wonderful desire to follow the lead of the 'Master Shepherd', Christ. The beginning light is often a tiny flicker and a roar as a flash of lightening ignites a dry forest which become a crescendo. This crescendo is often controlled and extinguished by rain from heaven after all the dead wood is burned up (John 15:6, Revelation 8:7). This is representative of right living and always living within the love of our Lord God by keeping all HIS commandments.

 Matthew 6:22: The lamp (light) of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good (spiritually healthy) your whole body will be full of light.  ** When you show your love by keeping all the commandments, the Messiah said in Matthew 5:13: You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its flavor how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and tramped underfoot by men ** Mark 9:50: Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another. ** Peace on earth can never come until the soon coming of the Messiah. ** Psalm 2:9: You (Messiah, Christ Jesus)  shall break them (nations) with a rod of iron. You shall dash them to pieces like a potter' vessel.  ** King David set a tiny example of our God's coming wrath against all nations within this disobedient world.   

Daniel 2:22: He (God reveals deep and secret things. He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him. ** Those that love the Lord your God must continue in the battle against the evil god of darkness (the devil) of this world to fight on in love of God; for in due season our only Almighty God will be revealed.

 First Timothy 6:13-16: I (Paul) urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession (righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness) before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment  without spot, blameless until our (Messiah) Lord Jesus Christ' appearing, which He will manifest (Make clearly in sight) in HIS own time. HE who is the blessed and only Potentate (ruler), the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, who no man has seen or can see, to who be (is) honor and everlasting power. Amen. 

John 1:4-5: In HIM (the Word) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it. ** Verse 9-11: That was the true light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He (the Word, the Messiah) was in the world, , and the world was made through HIM, and the world did not know HIM. HE  came to HIS own (line of King David) and HIS own did not receive HIM. ** An adulteress was brought to the Light of the World on the Mount of Olives expecting the Messiah, Jesus Christ to condemn her. ** John 8:10-12: When Jesus had raised HIMSELF up and saw no one but the woman, HE said to her: Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you? She said: no one Lord. And Jesus said to her. Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more. Then Jesus spoke to them again (later), saying: I am the light of the world. He who follows ME shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. ** Our Lord God will soon take HIS people out of darkness and bring HIS glory of light which will become 'sin no more'.

Isaiah 60:1: Arise, shine, for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Verse 19-22: The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; for the lord will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory......For the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. Also your people shall all be righteous. They shall inherit the land forever.....I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.

 To become part of this everlasting light within the soon coming Kingdom, you must strive to turn away from the ingrained sinful teachings within your worldly family, friends and teachers. You must try to steer them back to God and HIS perfect ways (all HIS Laws). Repentance, baptism and the laying on of hands is the way to righteousness. This will begin your journey into the soon coming sin free Kingdom. The Messiah, Christ Jesus said we can do nothing without HIM (John 15:5). This means we must frequently call upon our one God and Father in Heaven to empower us with HIS Holy Spirit to help us flee from the wiles of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

 Ephesians 6:11-12: Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against power, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places **This is the devil and his fallen angels who have the power to make you think you are righteous when you listen to the many false teachers that omit many or all the commandments of the Word within the Holy Bible. Search the scriptures and follow the lead of the Messiah. the son of God and only sin free man that walked on this evil earth. Walk with the Messiah in the way of our Lord God with HIS truth and the light of life; even forevermore!
